"As historical mysteries go, Victorian England has its charms; but dirty, pestilential eighteenth-century France really promises a walk on the wild side. Jean-François Parot delivers on that pledge with gusto."—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Suspenseful. . . . This intelligent page-turner doesn't sacrifice detail for plot or visa-versa."—Publishers Weekly
